Introduction from Mark Cunningham, Chairman and Zillah Bingley, CEO
This impact report showcases highlights from across 2018/19. It shows the impact our service has on thousands of families’ lives and celebrates the generous and tireless contributions of our supporters and volunteers.
We were proud to support 727 new families.
The number of new families who turn to Rainbow Trust is increasing, demonstrating the growing need for and awareness of our high-quality trusted service. Through continued effective management of family caseloads and the increased number of hours volunteers spent supporting families alongside our Family Support Workers, we were able to prioritise those in greatest need.
Our campaigning and policy work was extensive.
